SUN Benchmark Mixed Early Week. FR0091 posted a yield increase of almost 3 bps yesterday. In addition to waiting for US inflation data next Friday, yesterday’s SUN
movement ahead of today’s SUN auction. Based on the survey, US inflation in May is projected at 0.7% MoM or 8.2% YoY. This inflation projection is still high on an annual basis (Vs. Apr. 8.3% YoY), even higher on a monthly basis (Vs. Apr. 0.3% MoM), questioning the effectiveness of the 50 bps FFR increase in early May. NHKSI Research sees that if US inflation has not slowed down, then the Fed reacts more aggressively beyond expectations, potentially causing the market to fluctuate again.

Yield UST10Y Returns 3%, ahead of US May MoM CPI data projected to return high (Cons. 0.7%; Vs. Apr. 0.3%), next Friday. Yield UST10Y is up 10.5 bps from the weekend. Previously, a strong US labor market, supported by May Change in Nonfarm Payrolls data added 390k, with the May Unemployment Rate remaining low at 3.6%, indicating the US economy is ready for a more aggressive FFR hike.
